In about three hours about 30 neighbors will descend upon us. We're hosting our neighborhood Christmas party. It's almost 50° and it's raining, but the temp is supposed to drop like a stone later tonight. The house is decorated, inside and out. The bathrooms are clean, and I've been cooking since yesterday -- made a variety of small sandwiches; spanokopita; baked brie with pears, walnuts and raisins; shrimp salad; the ubiquitous bread bowl dip; veggies; a huge platter of chicken tenders; meatballs, and smoked turkey and smoked ham on mini pumpkin muffins. Everyone is bringing desserts... :)
I wish each and everyone of you could join us.
And now, I need to put my feet up for a bit. Blessings.
